u2 - 12/7/1984 massey hall, toronto. waterboys opened (solid band). i was 16 and didn't have to fib. think my dad was down cause the boys were from the old country. i'm all but sure if it was one of those british new wave hair bands he would have put his foot down. i'll flock of seagulls you!

WOW! Waterboys! There's a great band that didn't get enough attention. Didn't get turned on to them until Fisherman's Blues, LOVE that album.

johnny,

there's a couple of tune's from fisherman's blues that i always seem to sneak onto mixed cd's - when will we be married, and a bang on the ear & strange boat. when i was still in that place that i thought it my calling to champion band's that hadn't received their fair due (now i just focus on dead shows lol), the waterboys always sat atop the list. with songs like whole of the moon, the big music, trumpets, a pagan place and old england i might have been on to something. you can hear dylan's influence all over 'em and it works. didn't care too much for wallinger's band, world party though.
